Vitiligo is a skin disorder in which patches of skin loose all of their color and turn white. This is an autoimmune process and can sometimes be associated with other problems such as thyroid disease. It is critical to wear an effective sunblock over all affected areas since they have no natural pigment to protect the skin from ultraviolet damage. See your dermatologist for evaluation and treatment options.
